Unlike Chromium Edge, Windows 10 Settings App or Control Panel applet doesn’t list Progressive Web Apps installed in the Chrome browser to remove. Google has made changes to Chrome 89 to make this possible on Windows.
Instead of visiting websites in the browser, you better install their PWAs in the browser because these can also work offline.
Of late, Microsoft and Google have worked together to improve PWAs to the Play store. Microsoft is also bringing new PWA features to Edge on Windows 10 May 2020 Update version 2004.
Both Chrome and new Edge shows an icon in the address bar to install if the website you visited is a Progressive Web App.
Edge and Chrome offer user interface in the browser at the edge://apps and chrome:// apps for the users to manage apps.
In addition to this, Edge PWAs can be uninstalled from Control Panel as well.
This is not possible in the case of Chrome PWAs, the Chromium team has addressed this issue in Chrome version 89
Starting version 89, you can uninstall Chrome Web Apps like any other application on Windows
